I am sorry that this message is coming to you all a little late as our tournament chairs have been displaced from our homes and offices. We first want to express our sympathy for the events that are unfolding and to all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Obviously, we cannot hold the tournament as rescheduled for this weekend, and have decided to cancel the tournament for 2017.
We do have quite an enormous amount of inventory in merchandise, so if you are still interested in placing an order to help us get back on track for holding next years tournament, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also make merchandise available to purchase directly through our website, however this will be a few weeks out.
Thank you all for your patience with us during this time, and we hope to see you all next year in our great town of Port Aransas for the Texas Women Anglers Tournament!
The Texas Women Anglers Tournament is a women's only fishing tournament in Port Aransas, Texas benefiting the Women's Shelter of South Texas.
The Texas Women Anglers Tournament is a qualifying tournament for the Offshore World Championship.
Choose Your Theme
At this years tournament each boat can choose its own theme. The theme is completely up to you. As always, we will give awards for best dressed boat & best dressed captain. Our judges can't wait to see what you come up with!
The anglers of the TWAT tournament are always sure to entertain with their festive pirate garb & decorated boats. Get inspiration for the 2015 pirate/throw back theme and admire the ladies creative work from previous years.
